i’m a huge fan of movies, and when i’m rummaging through my collection of DVDs looking for one to watch i’ll start singing a song from it, or say to myself “what a freaking amazing soundtrack!”. and whenever i’m shuffling through my ipod every second or third song is from a movie or a TV show.
here are my top 10 favourite soundtracks (not in order)
10 things i hate about you this CD was the soundtrack to my Florida holiday 2006 or something. every song was so spot on for the moment, and every song is amazing! my favourite song was probably Letters to Cleo – Cruel To Be Kind, and it’s so cute ’cause Patrick gets them to sing it for Kat, for it all to be ruined. Best scene of the whole movie, i think! i love Semisonic – FNT when they’re paintballing, cos they kiss at the end of that scene and it fits in far too well!! the soundtrack list is right here
project X just seen this movie quite recently and every song that came on, my friend and me would whisper to each other “what a tune!!!” or “love this song”. it’s such an immense soundtrack, i downloaded it the day after i went to see it. my favourite is kid cudi – pursuit of happiness steve aoki remix. it’s the one that was played in the advert that was constantly played on E4 adverts that were promoting the movie, and i just wanted the song to keep playing! here’s a link to the list here
tangled forgot how good the songs were in this until i watched it just yesterday, i was prancing about the house singing along to all the songs. and i have a clear favourite and it’s when will my heart begin! i love Mandy Moore’s voice so much, and this song is really funny, when shes hanging around the house doing all this stuff and painting and then talking about the chinese lanterns!!! i love it, i love it, i love it! find the songs here
enchanted i also watched this yesterday and sang the songs word for word. when i got out of hospital five years ago, this had been delivered to the house (along with Pump it up the exercise DVD which gathers dust in my cupboard now…). i watched it loads and the songs are so funny. i love the way enchanted really takes the mickey out of all disney movies. favourite – that’s how you know, when they’re all dancing about the park. it’s absolutely hysterical. there’s really only like 3 or 4 songs that are actually sung, but the music is even good!! get the song list here
i know i’m such a Disney freak, but after this there’s no more! for a couple of weeks when i was a kid i spent a few weeks in hospital and every day i watched mary poppins, whenever i sit and watch it i’ll talk along with the characters like a proper 5 year old. supercaligragilisticexpialidocious is my ultimate favourite disney song never mind my favourite mary poppins song! also i love jolly holiday with mary and i love to laugh! amazing, and it really all takes me back to when i was younger! soundtrack listing here
wizard of oz this movie is one of my total cheer up films, but i always fast forward to when it goes to colour – i hate non colour movies. i love the scarecrow, tinman and lion’s song “if i only had a brain/heart/the nerve”. i absolutely adore the lion, and the way he says “noive”. and then also “over the rainbow”, what an amazing song! wizard of oz songs here
(500) days of summer as much as this movie irritated me ’cause they never get together (’cause summer was a bitch), the songs in it were really good. i loved the genre of the soundtrack, the songs were all so relaxing, and really nice. they went with the movie and what was really happening in the movie. i feel like the songs are so ironic, they’re all so cheery and happy sounding, that it isn’t really clear that they won’t be together forever. get them here
a walk to remember listening to this soundtrack never fails to bring tear to my eye. they just remind me of one of the saddest movies i’ve ever watched. and like i said before i love mandy moore and i love that she sings in it, the song is amazing. my favourite song in this is mandy moore and jonathon foreman – someday we’ll know. its such a fab song, and it’s played when Landon is doing amazing things for Jamie and it’s such an amazing music scene! the songs are here
in January somebody i follow on twitter started a 30 day photo challenge thing, not the annoying one on facebook that states you have to upload one picture with 10 facts about yourself, 10 facts about your best friend, 10 of your favourite things…blah blah blah etc etc etc. this is just a different picture challenge. it’s not any normal picture a day, it’s the first time you’ve tried something, something you don’t do every other day…not “this is what ate today” unless in sushi in japan – with japan not being where you live, if that makes sense.
last night was the first night i had to myself in about three weeks. i made dinner for my mum, dad and myself then decided to watch some guy movies. this is my picture was april 1st because it’s not something i do often anymore. i used to constanly have DVDs on, but recently i’ve been watching boxsets (one tree hill at the moment).
i haven’t watched the Oscars yet, it’s still sitting unwatched in my sky+ planner. but i have had a good few looks at twitpics and on the look magazine website at outifts and hair styles etc.
i was planning on watching it until i watched Gossip Girl instead – was that the last of the season last night? it was beyond amazing.
Brangelina what are you all about? i cannot stand Angelina Jolie (Team Aniston all the way) so this made me dislike her even more. why is she so pale?? and being that pale and wearing black just makes your ghostliness more white!!! her outfit actually BORES me. black dress, black shoes, no jewellery, no bright clutch… and her hair! i would not be paying that hair stylist – that’s if she did pay someone!!! it looks all back combed and teased and tuggy! i was quite disappointed in this look because, although i don’t like her, i think she can look like an absolute babe sometimes. and Brad…whats with the hair?! he looks like a homeless person. But i enjoy the suit. Any man in a suit is sexy, but he needed to fix his hair!
Jen grow your hair back out! i really, really love Michelle Williams and have since Dawson’s Creek when she played cute “girl-next-door” Jen. this dress is absolutely stunning, the colour is really gorgeous but i don’t like the detail on the bottom half of the dress, it’s a bit much. her hair is gorgeous…but i really want her to grow her hair! i like long frill/skirt at the waist, it really helps give her shape, as she is quite up and down with no curves. i like the minimal accesories, they help the frill/skirt stand out and she doesnt look too OTT. the small pink clutch is really sweet and i genuinely JUST noticed it there! what’s with the paleness though? was that an oscars trend? i don’t get it…
Maya is a babe! i think Maya Rudolph is an absolutely stunning woman! this dress is gorgeous and really shows off her figure, the colour really, really suits her skin tone. my favourite part of the dress is the silver detail around the waist, the gorgeous belt helps to show of Maya’s lovely figure. I could imagine the dress without the shoulder detail but not the waist bit. i really love her hair, the colour, the style, the length etc, i think its really nice, and her make up is really understated but it’s gorgeous.
i’ve actually noticed that, looking through all the red carpet pictures from the glitzy and glam event, the make up was far from glitzy. it was nude colours and red lips all round.
Meryl is a GOD! The “Best Actress in A Leading Role” Oscar winner looks so happy in this picture! when i see this i couldn’t help but smile. Meryl Streep is definitely up top in my favourite actress list! she looked amazing at the Oscars! her dress was a lovely colour and complemented her shape. it was age appropriate (because there is nothing more unattractive than an older woman wearing clothes that reveal far too much). i dont mean age appropriate to defend her but you know what i mean. i really thought her hair was lovely, it was so simple, but elegant. she had nothing round her neck, but the neckline was quite plunging, so wearing no necklace worked, to help show off the neckline. However she was drop down earrings like big bulbs, and they looked gorgeous on.
another thing i noticed was the use of minimal accesories – small amounts of jewellery and small clutch bag. the detail and “wow” factors were all in the dresses!
So, looking at all these pictures has made me want to actually watch the oscars! So i predict another blog about them at some point in the near future!
had to call in sick due to some scary heart palpitations and i am boredy bored bored!! lounging on the couch watching crap sunday tv. may even end up watching x factor again…uk version. yes i am that bored. nobody thrilled me last night i have to say.
i was more thrilled by paranormal activity 1 & 2. scariest. freaking. movies.
my new room will be all finished today! i am so excited, the carpet got put down yesterday and its gorgeous! its definetly not lindas room anymore!
moved over to the big couch and put The Ring on. i used to be completely terrfied of the ring until Scary Movie spoofed it and now i cannot stop laughing. “Cindy the tv’s leaking!” and “woah this bitch is messing up my carpet”. amazing.
cannot wait til they spoof paranormal activity!! cos them i wont be scared.
i am so very gutted, cos me and the girls were meant to be going out for all hallows eve tomorrow and i really am doubting wether i should go or not. but my chesire cat costume would be amazing!! two minds….two minds….
happy halloween and all sorts of heart problems ha!
Tomorrow I’m off and i am super excited! This week in work had been hurrendous, i dont know why everyone needs their groceries every day! buy in bulk people.
I work in Morrisons and really, really, really, really… (i could go on and on), REALLY hate it! i need a new job so, so, so much!! But i cannot devour too much into why i hate the job (or i should and get fired – kidding.) but i do.
but i have been feeling so down, and i think i deserve my movie/duvet day off tomorrow. Me and Nicholas are going to watch House season 6, Star Wars and I’m going to try get him to watch the Scary Movie Quadrilogy (uuuuhh sonnnn!!!).
Also i want to bake lots and lots and lots of lil cupcakes and chocolate cake. And i most definetely want to stay in my pyjamas all. day. long.
It’s also a work night out tomorrow night and we are totally boycotting it. if i dont like spending time with my colleagues in work, why would i want to socialize with them??
I hate two-facedness and bitchiness. i’ll raise my hand and i say i have done my fair share of being a complete bitch. but it is unreal some of the bitching i come across sometimes. if i happen to come across someone who i feel i dont particularly like (and i do know quite a few people like that) i tend not to bother talking to them. what riles me is people who are so lovely to other folk and the minute this poor soul has turned away, theres a big butcher night right there in their back. it makes me sick. it’s a waste of time and energy and love.
you can’t love and hate everyone. but its not like you either love someone or hate them. i hate very few people. there is one girl i hate in my life and it is VERY called for. my dad always says “hates not the right word.” for this girl, its not enough.
this is getting rambly and i like it. i like to write my thoughts and i’d love to inspire your thoughts. i need inspired!
my mum keeps asking “what do you want to do?” and honestly i cannot answer the question. i’d love to travel but i’m such a home-girl. i’m too close to my sister, i’d miss her too much. i hate being away from Nic, i’d miss him too much. and i love my friends, i’d miss them too much. (never mind the fact i actually dont even have the money!!)
if i could travel? Australia, Canada, Caribbean, Africa, ALL of France…
I have only been to France once and for two nights, to Paris. And i fell in love with the city. It’s so gorgeous and it’s just amazing. Everyone just chilling out by the Sienne and just chilling out in Jardin Du Luxembourg with their picnics. It’s so me – lazy!!!
I wish i could move to Paris. Live in a little flat with a small balcony (like in Sex and the City, the one Carrie stands on as she looks at the Eiffel Tower) with lovely flowers that will be taken care of by not me and a butler. Yes a butler i will have and a driver. and i’ll meet with my gorgeous French friends and discuss (in French) everything gorgeous and make up and fashion and shopping and books and love…
and now i’m dreaming. sitting in my box room with my box bed and box life.
